Quick And Simple Braided Bun Hair Tutorial

Weather you're in college and rushing class, traveling and catching an early flight, or a mother and just trying to get out of the house - quick hairstyles are a necessity for any busy woman. As a new mom, quick and easy hairstyles are my thing. When I'm in a rush but I still want to look professional and relatively put together (haha because since having a baby I'm not sure that I ever feel "put together") this is one of my go to hair-styles. 

The only thing about this hair tutorial that you might not find simple is the french braid. I know how to french braid from my high-school cheer days and I wear them in my hair a number of different ways, but if you don't know how I believe you can still accomplish a similar look. Just put your hair in a ponytail, braid a section of the pony and put it in a bun - see it's simple. 

For those of you who can french braid, here is my braided bun hair tutorial.

*Don't mind all the frizzy hair on the front of my head - after having Giulian I lost quite a bit of hair around my forehead and it's starting to grow back (and looks a bit crazy haha). 


Step 1: French braid front half of hair.  Continue the braid down until the end of your hair (see pictures).

Step 2:  Grab the rest of your hair and put it in a ponytail.

Step 3: Wrap the hair into a bun. If you want a bigger bun with more volume, tease the hair prior to wrapping it into a bun (I did not this time). Make sure the braid is on the outside of the bun so you can see it.

Step 4: Secure the bun with bobby-pins.

Step 5: Cut off the elastic hair tie (if visible). Be careful not to cut your hair of course (I used cuticle cutters).
